Bleu Breeze Mojito + Bali Sunset Cocktail Recipes

 photo All about the garnish_zps7tkrtctc.jpg

We're only a few days away from the official start to summer and that means fun in the sun with friends, family, good food and yummy drinks! I'm not a huge fan of all alcoholic beverages other than the occasional glass of wine, but in the summer I love to have fruity drinks - my favorite! I'm so excited to have partnered with Alizé in putting together a few fun recipes to make with this super yummy French Vodka.

Using the Bleu Passion and Gold Passion, I've literally found my two favorite summer drinks. You're able to make such refreshing, unique and inviting cocktails that you can share with friends and family all summer long! I'm so loving sitting by the pool with these drinks!

From the moment I popped the Alizé Passion bottles opened I was so excited because the colors of the vodka are gorgeous and they smell amazing! And I'll admit I was pretty excited about the twist on corks! ; )

I was able to try the Bleu Passion and Gold Passion liqueurs and I'm so glad I chose these two because they're absolutely perfect for summer entertaining (for a party of 1 or 10 ;) and they're easy to twist, pour on the rocks and serve or be made into a refreshingly bright cocktail. I think the best way to make fun summer drinks even more fun is ALL in the garnishing of them. I love adding garnishes to the cups; these are my go-to's for these two cocktails:

Raspberries, lime and mint - when I first received the Bleu and Gold Passion's I thought about how I could tie the two into each other and make them compliment each other. Garnishing drinks with the same ingredients is a great way to pair different drinks together!

I'm sharing two recipes today - a Bleu Breeze Mojito and a Bali Sunset. These were such a hit the first time I made them and even I was so surprised at just how yummy they were! These will no doubt me my cocktails of choice ALL summer long! Here's how you can make them too:

Bleu Breeze Mojito

Serving Size: 4

Ingredients:

Mix together the Alizé Bleu Passion Vodka, lemonade and club soda in a shaker. Shake well and pour into 8 oz glasses over ice. Squeeze some fresh lime into the cups to taste and garnish with lime slices and mint leaves. This will make enough to fill four 8 oz. glasses and let me tell you, it is GOOD!

The lemonade is the perfect sweet balance to this recipe. The Alizé Bleu Passion is the perfect blend of passion fruit, fresh cherries, ginger and French vodka. It's perfect for everyone and an added bonus is that it looks SO pretty! The prettier the drink, the happier I am!

Bali Sunset

Serving Size: 4

Ingredients:

Combine the Alizé Gold Passion, raspberry lemonade (you can substitute this for pink lemonade if desired) and club soda and shake well. Pour into 8 oz. glasses on the rocks. Add a pinch of sugar (optional), a spritz of lime juice and 4-5 raspberries. Garnish the glass with a lime slice and raspberry.

The Gold Passion vodka is colorful, fun and is the perfect blend of passion fruit, French vodka and is super smooth and sweet! These two drinks are so yummy and it's hard to even pick a favorite because they have such different tastes. I think the bleu and gold passion vodka's compliment each other so well and having these two drinks side by side for your guests to choose from is the way to go - they're both super refreshing, fruity and SO perfect for summer.

I absolutely love the way fun, fruity summer drinks look in mason jars and they're the perfect size too. Add a fun straw and you are good to go!

Alizé comes in four fun flavors: Bleu, Gold, Red and Peach Passion. I'm so excited to try the others; I highly recommend these amazing French vodkas for all of your summer get-togethers and to enjoy all summer long on the warmest days! They're available nationally and you can find out more about each and even find some more fun recipes straight from Alizé.

  15. I've been curious about Alize, but have yet to try them. After seeing these two cocktail recipes, I definitely need to buy a bottle or two. I love a mojito, especially in the summer. It's cool and refreshing.

  16. I usually only drink my half and half twisted teas on kid-free weekends but this honestly looks worth trying. I can drink alcohol like this only if I can't taste the alcohol - so wonder if it tastes super fruit or not? I prefer tasting a fruit or other flavor beyond the liquor.
